Straight from the dungeons of LA, Nathan Williams and Stephen Pope, better known as Wavves, now sound bigger, brasher and shockingly professional than ever – with their fourth album Afraid Of Heights, to be released March 22 through Inertia.
LA’s Wavves arrived on the skate/pop/punk/skuzz scene in 2009 with their self-titled debut. They return with their third release, an 8-track mini album (if you include the two bonus tracks) by the refreshingly honest name of Life Sux. Wavves is the brain child of lead singer Nathan Williams, who writes all songs on the album, apart from opening track Bug, on which he shares a writing credit with Stephen Pope.
From the same guys who have brought us Darwin Deez and Girls, now comes talented New York group Wavves, with their third album King Of The Beach. As the brainchild of Nathan williams, Wavves began as the bedroom DIY punk project in Williams’ parents San Diego home, and although extermely happy with his first double-album worth of lo-fi punk oddessey, Williams “wanted to do something bigger, something stronger.”
